End of Life Care: A Practical Guide offers solution-oriented coverage of the real-world issues and challenges that arise daily for clinicians caring for those with life-limiting illnesses and conditions.
End of Life Care: A Practical Guide includes specific clinical guidance for pain management and other common end of life symptoms.

Six sections walk you through the complexities of caring for patients who are nearing the end of life:

No other text better assists physicians and other clinicians in providing patients near the end of life with support, guidance, and hope in the face of âhopelessnessâ than End of Life Care: A Practical Guide.
